37 weeks.....how to get labor going?

I'm 37 weeks pregnant, and MISERABLE. My braxton hicks are so strong sometimes i actually cry. I have a lot of pressure down there among a million other pains. I'm looking for ways to get this labor going. What worked for you? My son was induced on his due date, so I'm not sure if that means i'll probably go over my due date, or if she can come early...but please give me some ideas!!!

  • Sex worked for me, but it's not time for you yet! Wait just a little while longer!

  • Walk a lot. If you have a gym membership go get on the elliptical. Good luck!

  • you wait till baby decides to come... or walk your butt off.. walking and activity does help but at the end of the day baby WONT come till he/she is ready all on his/her terms not ours

  • Having sex worked for us. I also walked to work and home and also was on my feet 9-11 hours a day working and always moving and waiting on people. I was very active thur my whole pregnancy i am a very healthy active person anyways. Walk and have sex. GL and Congrats :~)

  • I would wait a few more weeks like the other ladies suggested. If you are that uncomfortable and in that much pain call your OB and get checked to make sure everything is ok

  • Pregnancy is uncomfortable. You just need to deal with it. None of that stuff really works for everyone. But I'd try sex and walking.

  • I would say that it is too early for you to go into labor still.. You should wait until your child is ready.. No one said pregnancy is a cake walk hun. I am only 20 weeks pregnant, and I am completely miserable.. and in a ton of pain.. But I am dealing with it!
